This gilt bronze mounted mantel clock is formed about a beautiful sky-blue, parcel gilt Sèvres style porcelain vase. The enamel dial is mounted within a gilt bronze drum that is draped with gilt bronze garlands and bows. The dial is enumerated with Roman numeral hours and Arabic numeral minutes. The porcelain vase is mounted with two gilt bronze twin snake handles and is surmounted by a gilt bronze finial comprised of courting birds. The vase, held aloft by a gilt bronze stem, sits on a rectangular gilt bronze podium that stands on four gilt bronze scrolled leaf feet. The dial is signed ‘Kreisser Bte A Paris’, while the movement is stamped ‘Medaille D’Argent Vincenti & Cie’.
